As the world becomes more globalised, we are all looking for a global connection, finding opportunities to impact the world positively. But how does one go about this? Citizenship by investment is one such route. Holding second citizenship opens up a world of opportunities allowing individuals greater global mobility, secure wealth, and providing a safe future for one’s family.
We are passionate about this industry. We want to invite everyone to be part of the global community where we share the same experiences and work together to better humanity. Alternative citizenship is more inclusive as it allows for better conversations, business transactions and mobility.
Dual citizenship has become more coveted than ever. With several reputable citizenship by investment programmes in place, it is an accessible option for many.
The following three pillars can highlight the benefits of holding second citizenship:
Recently, people have placed more importance on lifestyle and accessibility. They want to be part of communities or countries where they have the security of a solid healthcare system and access to good education options. Holding second citizenship gives a chance to build global connections and opens up a number of opportunities for families and their children.
Second citizenship also allows for greater global mobility with visa-free or visa-on-arrival travel, an essential benefit for those looking for international opportunities.
With current global uncertainty and market volatility, investors are concerned about their wealth and assets in their home countries. Extending one’s reach into global markets opens up further opportunities for investment and growth. The future of financial planning includes diversifying your wealth and assets, and citizenship by investment can do that.
“The opportunities that economic citizenship and migration can bring can allow business people to work on an international scale, and by having this presence, they are then able to access the global markets much more effectively than was previously possible,” says Micha Emmett.
Due to an ever-changing world where countries are affected by social unrest, economic strife, and government intrusion, second citizenship can be an opportunity to secure the physical safety and security of yourself and your family. Having a plan B is the insurance policy of the 21st century.
Just over a dozen countries in the world currently offer citizenship by investment. There is a higher concentration of citizenship by investment programmes in the Caribbean, a region considered the cradle of citizenship by investment.
St Kitts and Nevis launched the first citizenship by investment programme in 1984. Since then, many other Caribbean countries — including Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, and St Lucia — have followed suit.
Countries that have citizenship by investment programmes attract skilled and talented individuals from across the world. New citizens are productive members of society who bring with them a range of expertise and skills.
They invest in government-approved initiatives, which improves the financial stability within the country. These countries use citizenship by investment funds to support their economic development, infrastructure, ecotourism, health, and education sectors.
For example, due to Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme, it is one of the fastest-growing economies in the Caribbean region. The funds generated from the Programme are used to boost national growth in areas such as healthcare, education, infrastructure, and climate change. The government has focused on constructing a state-of-the-art hospital, health centres, and the country’s first international airport. Furthermore, Dominica’s ‘Housing Revolution’ is another initiative funded by the country’s Citizenship by Investment Programme that provides affordable and sustainable homes to families displaced by Hurricane Maria in 2017.
At CS Global Partners, we match reputable investors with countries offering the best citizenship by investment option. Our mission is to find a win-win solution rooted in goodwill and integrity by focusing on the greater impact on the countries that we work with while meeting the needs of our investors.
“Our goal is to, through an investment vehicle, expand our clients’ presence globally through an alternative second citizenship or second residence, with the premise being that by establishing oneself in an alternative jurisdiction, you’re opening yourself up to more international business opportunities, in a perfectly legal manner,” says Emmett.
When CS Global Partners was established, we created a dedicated legal department so that clients can feel supported in the way that they are walked through the process.
The legal team also ensures that the applications that are submitted to the Citizenship by Investment Units are of the highest quality. This is quite important as the Unit makes a final recommendation to the relevant Minister on whether to approve in principle, deny, or delay an application. We focus on the quality of what we put forward to the Units.
